was ruled inactive for Week 1 against the
Sunday, after going through pre-game warmups. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Beckham was nearly non-existent in
New York Giants
‘ practice as he recovers from an ankle injury.
Beckham should be back in Week 2, but if you were planning on using him in Week 1, you’ve got to make a last-second change to your roster. Hopefully you were smart and had a contingency plan available, but if not, we’re going to help you find some emergency fill-in options to add to your roster at the last minute, based on players playing in Sunday or Monday night’s games:
Flex Options to consider…
(45% owned) is another player who could benefit from Beckham’s absence. He’s a huge risk in his first NFL game, but the talent is obvious, and he could be a star.
- The talent is… less obvious when it comes to
(71%), one of the biggest busts in all of Fantasy last season. However, he did go off for 109 yards on seven receptions and a score in a game Snead missed last season.
- We expect the
Los Angeles Chargers
to give the lion’s share of the work at tight end to
this season, but they still have some unfinished business with
(26%). He is one touchdown away from breaking the all-time record for touchdowns for a tight end, and getting that out of the way would be a nice way to open the season.
(67%) is weirdly in a similar spot to Gates. You’re just hoping he takes a touchdown away from a more talented young guy ahead of him on the depth chart. Just roll the die and hope you get the right number. It might be the best you can do.
